Collectable weapon can not be picked up


#1

A collectable weapon looking like an smg can be found close to the Savered mast, in a small lock-pickable red building. Visible on a shelf but no way to take it. Platform PC.


For people who want to know weapon locations ****spoilers****

i had that same issue, do you have a red or white canister?

place one down to stand on and you should be able to reach it. every time i tried to jump on it it moved or tipped over and had to re place it, also i tried putting it in the corner to make it easier to stand on but still couldn’t reach it that way.
the trick was to just slowly walk toward it and i went up onto the canister and was able to get it

Thanks for reporting it, and good thing it’s reachable from above :slight_smile:


#4

i had to ask on the Discord when it happened to me


#5

Temporal fix for this is to just try every angle around the item you can’t pick, try crouched. If that doesn’t work, get high up on something, push a chair, i even used a lamp once.

Oh thanks, I will give a try. I have vaguely thought about this possibility as usually in similar games your are able to push some objects and jump at them.

EDIT : Nope, it does not work. I put 3 red canisters, one fuel cell and one car battery. I pushed all this together, walked upon it. I was a bit higher than the shelf with the weapon. But the weapon just shows the small hand sign, but it does not highlight up at all. Definitely a bug.

Btw I discovered that the lock-pickable buildings re-spawn their loot and they stay unlocked.


#7

i don’t know how it works so the weapon may not be in the same spot for you but just went back to get a clip of me trying to get it.


it took a while to get it right, should not be so tricky

#8

Had a similar issue but luckily I was on with another player and I crouched down next to the shelf and he stood on my back and could grab the weapon. Otherwise, neither of us could get it no matter what we did.


#9

nice, maybe the devs can pretend some loot is strategically place to encourage cooperation


#10

OH GREAT, thanks for your time. I will try once more. I have tried several angles but rather coming from the left close to the door.

Edit : YES I DID IT! Just a blue Kpist, I have got already one, but I learned something useful.
And I discovered I can visit regularly all my green or red buildings to retrieve plenty of good loot. :money_mouth_face:


#11

glad to hear it :+1:


#12

Where exactly is this location? Scratch that found it.


#13

Sry, I have no pc here to make a screenshot for you, just my phone.


#14

Radio mast on the West Coast, on the end of a small peninsular…


#15

What is odd about this weapon location is that I can collect ammo etc from boxes higher up but not the gun that is on the middle-ish shelf…


#16

Nice tip with the gas tank, it worked to collect the weapon! :sunglasses:


#17

Yeah, try the red or white canister trick (use it like a little stool) - that should get you in the right angle :blush:
